Bovada tabs Heat betting line for wins at 34 1/2

WASHINGTON -- Now that everyone knows Chris Bosh's career with the Miami Heat is probably over, oddsmakers are pretty much burying the franchise's chances this season.

The offshore sports book on Tuesday set the over-under betting line on Miami's win total for this coming season at 34 1/2 games. Last week the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook tabbed Miami at the 36 1/2 wins (tied for third-fewest in the Eastern Conference).

Only the Brooklyn Nets (20 1/2), Los Angeles Lakers (24 1/2), Phoenix Suns (30) and Sacramento Kings (34) are projected to produce fewer wins than the Heat and Milwaukee Bucks, who are also projected to win 34 1/2 games with forward Khris Middleton expected to be out until March. The Philadelphia 76ers were off the board due to Ben Simmons' foot injury.

The last time the Heat, last year's No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, won fewer than 35 games was when they went 15-67 in 2007-08 (Pat Riley's final season as coach). Under Riley's leadership as coach and as team president, the Heat has only finished with a losing record three times since 1995.

What does coach Erik Spoelstra like about this team, which must replace Dwyane Wade, Bosh, Luol Deng and Joe Johnson among others? 

"I do like the competitiveness of guys," he said. "Guys are really coming to work and getting after it, getting after each other. We've also gotten to that point that we better play somebody else soon. This group has a good energy and approach every day. So, I do like that."

Golden State Warriors (66 1/2)
San Antonio Spurs (58 1/2)
Cleveland Cavaliers (56 1/2)
Los Angeles Clippers (53 1/2)
Boston Celtics (52 1/2)
Toronto Raptors (50 1/2)
Utah Jazz (49)
Detroit Pistons (45 1/2)
Portland Trailblazers (45 1/2)
Indiana Pacers (44 1/2)
Houston Rockets (44)
Atlanta Hawks (43 1/2)
Oklahoma City Thunder (43 1/2)
Charlotte Hornets (42 1/2)
Memphis Grizzlies (42 1/2)
Washington Wizards (42 1/2)
Minnesota Timberwolves (40 1/2)
Chicago Bulls (38 1/2)
Dallas Mavericks (38 1/2)
New York Knicks (38 1/2)
Orlando Magic (37 1/2)
Denver Nuggets (37)
New Orleans Pelicans (37)
Miami Heat (34 1/2)
Milwaukee Bucks (34 1/2)
Sacramento Kings (34)
Phoenix Suns (30)
Los Angeles Lakers (24 1/2)
Brooklyn Nets (20 1/2)
Philadelphia 76ers (Off the board)

Chris Bosh pens thank you letter to Miami Heat fans

NASSAU, BAHAMAS -- Chris Bosh posted a new blog on his website Friday thanking the city of Miami and Heat fans for their support.

Chris BoshIn the post, it sounds almost as if the 11-time All-Star is saying good-bye to the franchise once and for all. On Monday, team president Pat Riley said Bosh's career with the Heat was probably over in light of his recent failed physical and ongoing bout with blood clots over the last 21 months.

"It’s funny how things change," Bosh wrote. "All I have right now associated with basketball are my friends and memories. And I’m so thankful for those things.

"I remember just a few years ago when the Big 3 were together and we were having a ball playing the game we love with some of the most professional, talented guys the NBA has ever seen.

"I remember the fans of Miami coming out to see the show every night. The love, the compassion and the energy we felt was second to none. I want to thank the city of Miami from the bottom of my heart because things may change but the good times will last forever in my memories. Thank you!

"Things are different now and Miami has incredible young talent with a tremendous upside. These are not only talented ball players but great people and friends. I enjoyed playing with those guys and doing my best to mentor them by being an upstanding role model and veteran player. It’s their time to go through the ups and downs of the game with this great city.

"I want to thank not only the fans of Miami but everyone around the world who has supported our team and who has supported me through this time. I see you posting with #BoshRebuilt on social media every day and I receive the love that you give me. Thank you so much. I couldn’t make it without your support.

"I’m just opening myself up and letting you into my life a little bit, which isn’t easy for me, but putting yourself out there is never easy. I hope you guys have enjoyed Episodes 1 through 4 of #BoshRebuilt, available anytime on

"Thank you for taking in this project of mine and making it all well worth it."

Notes and quotes from Tuesday's Heat practice in the Bahamas

NASSAU, BAHAMAS -- The Heat's first practice of the season took place here Tuesday morning inside a ballroom turned basketball court and as so many Miami fans have come accustomed to hearing Josh McRoberts was a non-participant. 

Coach Erik Spoelstra said McRoberts, who was on a stationary bike, injured his foot and ankle about five weeks ago.

McRoberts, who has a chance to make an impact this season with Chris Bosh out and Miami in dire need of help at power forward, has missed 88 games in his first two seasons with the Heat because of various injuries.

"He's actually rehabbing well," Spoelstra said. "So, he'll be doing more and more this week. [Undrafted rookie forward] Stephan [Jankovich] also has a sprained ankle. But he was able to participate probably the first half hour of practice. We'll monitor both of them as the week goes on. [Josh Richardson] is doing a little bit."

Richardson, who sprained his MCL coming down after a dunk during a team workout three weeks ago, said he spent nearly all of Tuesday's practice on a stationary bike. 

"Today I rode the bike for the first time," Richardson said. "I did some band work, balance work. I was on the court with the guys talking and helping out. But I couldn't really like run or anything like that."

Richardson said he can't tell if there is any pain in his knee because he really hasn't "tried anything yet."

He said he has no timetable for when he will start practicing for real. It's clear Spoelstra wants to be cautious with him.

"We really need to be careful," Spoelstra said. "With him it's tough, he's one of those guys we don't want to fast track because he would think he's ready to play right now. We want to be smart about it."


Though the Heat is spending six days here at a resort, there's not going to be a lot time for fun, Spoelstra said. The team has practices scheduled for 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day. 

"They know what to expect," Spoelstra said. "And if for whatever reason that escaped them not knowing what a Miami training camp would be like then I think after the session tonight they'll realize they won't have a lot of excess energy to do other things. But it's a great environment to get to work. The views are fantastic. Even out of our meeting rooms, coming out of our meals, it's a nice environment. We wanted to give these guys that environment while we're getting things done."

Guard Dion Waiters said he was probably going to be too tired to enjoy the water slides and beaches at Atlantis.

"I'm not going to no beach," Waiters said.  "I'm tired. It's work. This is what it's about, taking care of business now so when the game comes it's easier. If we push each other like we did today we're only going to make each other better."

Still, veteran Udonis Haslem said he would like to get players together to do something fun before they leave.

"I have to find out the schedule from coach," Haslem said. 

Will he take the team down the 50-foot slide? 

"I don't know," Haslem said with a grin. That slide gives you wedgies."


Spoelstra said he was extremely happy with the collective conditioning of the team -- especially Waiters who has shed close to 12 pounds and 3 1/2 percent body fat in three weeks. 

"Guys came in extremely well conditioned," Spoelstra said. "So we were able to really get into full contact in this first practice. We didn't mess around or wait. We got right to it. We didn't feel the need to use practice to get guys in shape. Instead we were getting ready to work, which we need a lot of it. We have new faces, guys in different roles. I commend them for really spending the last seven, eight weeks putting in that time to get their bodies right.

"[Waiters] made it through this practice without a problem. We love his conditioning right now."

Said Waiters: "I feel good. I feel lighter. I have a lot of energy. I felt great."

Having Haslem around to lead the team in voluntary workouts since Aug. 1 has been huge, Spoelstra said.

"He's been tremendous," he said. "When you bring in new players and you're developing a young group you have to have veteran leadership and somebody who understands what the Miami Heat way is. We're not saying the Miami Heat way is better or worse than any other way. But at least we know and believe in a way. That brings some stability to some of the guys coming in here. They have an idea of what to expect.

"I say this a lot, but we can spend a lot of time explaining what the Miami Heat culture or what it means to put on a Miami Heat uniform. Or, we could show a picture of Udonis Haslem and they get the idea of what the culture is by his example. His voice has been tremendous. The guys respect him."

Haslem said the team "had a lot of energy" Tuesday.

"As usual, offense is a little messy. But that's what you expect the first couple days with people flying around like chickens with their heads cut off," he said. "But there was a lot of energy out there, a lot of fresh legs out there."

> Players said it was weird not seeing Chris Bosh or Dwyane Wade around after so many years with the organization. But the message has been consistent from the top on down -- it's time to move on. 

"It is strange," Spoelstra said. "But, once you get on the wood and start working with this group they got the attention that they deserve from the coaching staff. It's about these 19 guys right now, investing in all of them. And preparing for 29 days from now."

Center Hassan Whiteside said it sucks not having Bosh around. He misses his friendship in the locker room. But the Heat has to move on.

"We have really talented guys," Whiteside said. "Guys that are willing to put in work everyday. We just have to move forward with what we've got. These guys are talented. So, I'm not worried." 

> What is Whiteside looking to improve on?

"Just build trust with the guys, build chemistry with the guys," he said. "Me and Goran [Dragic] had much better chemistry the second half of the season. We got like almost a whole new team. Building chemistry with the guys and showing them I'm trustworthy and vice-versa."

Heat's NBA title odds fall to 100/1 in wake of Chris Bosh news

If odds makers have the inside track on how this NBA season will end then it probably won't be very enjoyable for the Miami Heat.

A week after the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook tabbed Miami at the 36 1/2 wins (tied for third-fewest in the Eastern Conference), released its newest NBA championship odds on Tuesday with the Heat drastically slipping from its opening 33/1 odds back on June 20 to 100/1 odds.

It's hardly surprising considering Pat Riley said Monday Chris Bosh's career with the Heat is probably over

Miami's odds to win the East meanwhile opened at 40/1 or tied with Milwaukee, Detroit and Washington for eighth in the conference. The Heat, meanwhile, are receiving the third-best odds to win the Southeast Division at 13/4, behind the Hawks (7/4) and Wizards (3/1).

"There's always going to be a story line, but our expectations with the Heat never change," coach Erik Spoelstra responded Tuesday when asked about the lowered expectations for the Heat this coming season.

"It's what makes us who we are. We're stubborn in our belief about those expectations and we feel that this group has a big ceiling. It will take some time, learning this group and figuring out how to get the best out of it. But we do like the pieces and we feel it has great potential. So, we'd be doing a disservice to this group to listen whatever predictions are out there."

Udonis Haslem said the Heat will never get used to playing with lowered expectations.

"We use that kind of stuff. We use it as a motivation. We use it as fire," he said. "At the end of the day the only thing that matters is the guys that's in the locker room. For me, a large amount of my success has been that chip that I've carried on my shoulder, throughout my career. For me, knowing a good amount of those guys have that chip, that's good for me to start working with."

Chris Bosh responds to failed physical and releases second installment of Rebuilt

Late Friday night, in light of the news of his failed physical with the Miami Heat, Chris Bosh released a statement to his fans on social media.

In it, he hinted that despite the setback and recurrence of clotting in his body, that he was in no way considering retirement yet. In fact, he sounded like a man that wouldn't give up his fight just yet.

"What's going on everybody?" Bosh said before providing a short preview of Episode 2 of his self-directed documentary Rebuilt.

"I had the intention of releasing Episode 2 with Uninterrupted, Bosh Rebuilt today under the assumption I would be cleared to go for camp," he continued. "Unfortunately, that is not the case. But that does not stop me from trying to share my creative side with you guys and hoping that you want to come along in the journey with me. Just because the journey has ups and downs doesn't means I will stop sharing with you guys. I will just continue to share despite what's going on.

"Little setbacks happen, but that doesn't change my intentions and what I want to accomplish. So, I hope you continue to watch. I hope you continue to just take in my journey and just come along with me with the ups and downs. So, it's a down moment right now. But everything is going to be alright."

On Saturday afternoon, Bosh released Episode 2 of Rebuilt. 

"Sometimes you just have to be broken down to rebuild yourself and come back better than ever," Bosh began saying in the clip. "We began to do our own research. We began to find articles. We began to find papers. We began to find other doctors who were not only forward thinking, but were specialists who could help and have dealt with athletes before. So, we decided to get smarter and just really hit the ground and just dig out as many clues as possible and we were able to find a few gems.

"The doctors I work with [say] its more so a matter of procedure. They have the formula. They take the blood. They study it. On blood thinners, off blood thinners. They get all the data possible to put their formula into it and customize it for me. It's not like I'm the first guy ever to do this. This is no experimental drug. This is a drug that people are very familiar with and numerous amounts of athletes have done this before me, which they some have been playing for years. So, it's not a matter of if I'm going to play again -- it's when.

"I'm in the gym everyday. I'm taking care of my body every day. That gives me the confidence to know that I can go out there and do my job. I'm one of the best players in the league. Whether I've been in the hospital or been in different situations it doesn't matter. I can still play the game."

Bosh of course recorded these clips weeks ago -- before he knew he had failed the physical and there was recurrence of clotting in his lung.

"If I felt that my husband's life and health was at risk -- we're a family of five children," Bosh's wife, Adrienne, said in the clip. "I wouldn't have been in agreement with my husband going onto a court if I didn't feel it was OK or thought that he was safe. There's nobody more concerned with our family's well being and leading our family and being here for me and being for our kids than him."

The episode ends with the announcement of Bosh not being cleared by the Heat to return to the court. 

Bosh then provides the following audio clip.

"I've done what I need to do. I've educated myself enough to know sometimes you just have to take things into your own hands," he said. "And, that's one of the messages I would implore all the young guys -- especially in sports out there -- is that you can take control of your own situation. If you feel that you need to put yourself in the best position possible to succeed, whatever that means, you need to make certain moves to do it, you can do it. If I don't get cleared, that's what I'll do."

It's unclear if Bosh will definitely fight the Heat on this matter moving forward. All we know for sure is he hasn't been cleared by the team and his career with the Heat is likely over. Miami can release him after Feb. 9, the anniversary of his last game, and then the remaining portion of his salary that would count against the salary cap would be wiped off the books.

That's of course if Bosh doesn't sign with another team and play in at least 25 games. After that point, his salary would go back against the Heat's cap.

Chris Bosh says on Snapchat: "Everybody is always asking me if I'm hooping. Yes, I'm hooping."

The Miami Heat still aren't ready to discuss the state of Chris Bosh's health or if he'll be ready for the start of training camp on Sept. 27. 

But Bosh at least is providing indications he's ready to resume his playing career following a second bout with blood clots last season.

On Monday, the 11-time All-Star posted videos of himself running through basketball drills on his Snapchat account.

He also had a message for his fans: "I know I've been gone for a moment, but now I'm back," Bosh said in one of the clips. "Everybody is always asking me if I'm hooping. Yes, I'm hooping. Absolutely. I'm a hooper."

Bosh has missed the second half of each of the last two seasons after developing blood clots in his legs. While his teammates have said on multiple occassions this summer they expect him to return to the court this coming season, the Heat as an organization hasn't. Monday, when asked again about Bosh, a team spokesman told the Miami Herald: "Sorry, no update yet."

Bosh believes he should be cleared according to a source who spoke to our Barry Jackson. The Heat has said it would like to find a way for Bosh to play and disputes any notion it is trying to clear Bosh off the salary cap. 

Last month when team president Pat Riley was asked about Bosh during a press conference Riley said: "I think we should just wait until August, September. I think we'll have a lot more information then."

Heat owner Micky Arison posted an open letter to the team's fans earlier this month that included Bosh in it. Coach Erik Spoelstra, however, has not mentioned Bosh in any of the videos the team has released when Spoelstra has discussed the upcoming season.

Videos Monday featured Bosh working through mid-range shooting, three-point shooting and dribbling drills.

Several teammates have been voluntarily working out at AmericanAirlines Arena for a couple months. Bosh hasn't appeared in any vidoes the team has posted on social media from those workouts.

The primary concern with Bosh, who is still due $76 million over the next three years, is whether or not he can return to contact situations on blood thinning medication. 

"I think all those things will come in to play and there'll be a discussion," Riley said last month when asked if Bosh could return to the Heat with restrictions on travel and overall workload. "There are many players in different sports that do play with that condition, and they're on and off programs on blood thinners and stuff. But I think when it comes down to a final protocol, or if it gets to a formula in how this has to be done, then that's what we'll deal with."

Bosh hasn't played since Feb. 9. The only way the Heat could petition the league for salary cap relief is if Bosh doesn't play for a full calendar year and if an independent doctor jointly selected by the players association and the league determines Bosh cannot medically continue his career.

Haslem planning offseason workouts with Bosh, assumes he will play next season

Udonis Haslem claims he doesn't have any inside information.

Haslem BoshHe says he didn't ask Chris Bosh -- when the two hung out together last week to watch Game 2 of the NBA Finals at Bosh's house -- if Bosh, an 11-time All-Star, will definitely be back on the court when the Miami Heat reunites in late September and begins practicing again. 

But as far as he knows, Haslem, a 13-year Heat veteran, said Thursday, he's operating under the assumption Bosh, who missed the second half of the season for the second year in a row following another bout with blood clots, will be playing and not sitting on the sideline for the Heat next season.

"We didn't speak about it, but that's what I'm assuming," Haslem said Thursday after he drove over to South Broward High School and posed for photos and signed autographs for dozens of kids at a Miami Heat youth basketball camp. "I don't know much, but as far as I know that's what I'm assuming."

"His spirits are well," Haslem continued. "We talked about this summer. We're planning on getting a couple workouts in together. Like I said, I've already started my workouts. We talked about getting some workouts in together, spending some time together this summer out there in L.A.

"I asked him how he was feeling and he said he was feeling good. Actually said he feels great. Those were his exact words: 'I feel great.'"

The Heat have not updated Bosh's status since Pat Riley's end of the season press conference saying then that the team remains hopeful and is working toward getting Bosh back on the court next season.


Haslem, who turned 36 last week, said he still feels like he can play at least another three seasons. Haslem, who becomes a free agent on July 1, is a player Riley referred to as "a forever guy" for the Heat.

"If you talk to the right guys they'll teach you where to find the fountain of youth," Haslem said. "Hanging out with Juwan [Howard] the last couple years he gave me a couple tips on how to find the fountain of youth. There's only a few guys that know the directions. Me, Juwan, Richard Jefferson, Dwyane [Wade] has found it.

"It starts up in here," Haslem said pointing to his head. "It starts up in your mind. That's where you start the process and the plans. I feel good man. Obviously my minutes [were] limited so I didn't have to play that much. I've really been able to save my body a lot. I feel fine. I'm in the weight room a couple times a week, continuing to keep the body strong. Rehabbing on my plantar fascia that I tore. [I'm] just working on the body. Right now that's the most important thing."

Haslem tore the plantar fascia in his left foot near the end of the regular season. He played through the pain in the playoffs and provided some valuable minutes in the series victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

"When you pop it or tear it, it's almost like a surgery in itself," Haslem said of the tear. "That's the way they explained it to me. That's something where it doesn't really matter your age. It can happen to a young person or when you're old. The recovery is the same."

Haslem said he expects to be fully healed in about a month and a half. 

"I know for sure I've got two years in me," Haslem said. "Two years ago I had to come in and play -- Hassan [Whiteside], Bird, everybody was out. I gave solid minutes, played well. This year we were in the playoffs -- Game 6 in Charlotte. I can be ready in those type of situations for a couple years. I mean, honestly, I can play in a situation where I can play 10 to 15 to 20 minutes a night honestly if I had to. But that's just not the situation I'm in so.

"I keep my notes, though. I watch these guys around the league. I watch the guys around my age -- the David Wests, the Richard Jeffersons, the guys that are getting consistent minutes that are in the rotation and you know I'm very realistic about who I am and what I am at this age. So I watch those guys and see what those guys do and I take notes. I feel like if I'm a little bit above the level those guys are at as far as how I take care of my body and keep myself in shape. Like I said, those guys contibute minutes at their age. I can as well."

Could Luol Deng give the Heat a discount this summer? Maybe

He's sort of become the forgotten man.

Luol DengLuol Deng, once tabbed by Pat Riley as one of the most important free agent signings in Heat history, has sort of fallen to third in the pecking order behind Dwyane Wade and Hassan Whiteside when it comes to free agents Heat fans would like to see the team keep. 

But his value in the second half of Miami's season can't be denied. With Chris Bosh out, Deng slid over from small forward to power forward and became a big part of the Heat's 19-10 second half surge.

In Miami's fast-paced offense, which finished fifth in scoring after the All-Star break, Deng was as valuable a sparkplug as any. He averaged 15.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and led Miami in plus/minus (+144). Then, in the first round against the Hornets, he and Wade led the Heat in scoring at 19.0 points per game before struggling some against the Raptors.

With only $40 million in salary cap space, the Heat probably won't have enough money to keep Deng around and give Wade and Whiteside sizeable contracts.

The truth is, Deng turned out be a pretty good bargain at $10 million this season.

So do the Heat have any realistic shot at getting a discount from Deng to stay here? Well, maybe after hearing him talk on Tuesday. 

 "It was great. I always say I enjoyed it," Deng said of his two-year stint with the Heat. "You learn so much. You go through different paths in your life obviously. I'm really appreciative of this. Not only did I enjoy playing basketball on the court, but off the court it's an amazing city. So much to do. People have been great. People are very supportive. The fans are just unbelievable. Everywhere you go people really love the Heat and appreciate everything you do.

"Here people notice how hard you play and how hard you work. For me, it's always been who I am. Just go out there and it never really mattered to me what my numbers looked like. What always mattered to me was to be able to do what I could do out there and play as hard as I can. I felt like people kind of noticed that here. So, I really enjoyed it."

Could that influence his future? 

"Definitely," Deng said. "Like I said I enjoyed it here. I enjoyed every bit of it. So going forward obviously I would love to be here. It's something that we will sit down and discuss. I can't really say one bad thing about being here. I enjoyed my time. The one thing that I know about here is that it's an organization that wants to win and an organization that will support the players and what they do whether its on the court or off the court. My foundation got a lot of support, things I want to do in life. It's a lot more than just basketball here."

Is Deng at a point in his career philosophically where winning and staying with an organization are at least equal with financial considerations?

"Definitely," he said. "At the end of the day, I try to play the best that I can play, be the best player I can be and hear what everyone has to say and listen to teams. But for me, it's always about being comfortable, being in an organization and around people that really appreciate the things that I do. I think the financial part is what you discuss when you go into that room. There's a lot of teams out there that can offer you a lot of money, but the feel might not be the same and vice-versa. There could be teams that can't give you what the other team can, but they have a lot of other things they can support you with.

"I've been in this situation before when I came here. I remember choosing here and it wasn't really the financial [part that drew me]. It was really the fact I wanted to be comfortable and be somewhere where what I do is appreciated."

Of course, Deng says that now. But there are teams out there that would probably pay the 31-year-old veteran good coin to do what he does and to play in a system that might be better suited for him.

Remember, Deng wasn't involved in the Heat's offense when it was running through Chris Bosh and Wade in the first half of the season. All Deng pretty much did was stand in the corner and wait for the ball to find him.

If Bosh returns and plays again and Deng resigns with Miami, Deng would probably have to go back to that corner and play the small forward spot again.

In the end, Bosh's future with the Heat could ultimately be what makes Deng a real possibility of returning or not.

Heat issue statement saying Chris Bosh will not return in playoffs

TORONTO -- Chris Bosh's quest to return in the playoffs isn't happening this season -- at least according the Miami Heat.

The following statement was released moments ago:

"The Miami HEAT and Chris Bosh announce that Chris will not be playing in the remainder of the 2016 NBA Playoffs. The HEAT, Chris, the doctors and medical team have been working together throughout this process and will continue to do so to return Chris to playing basketball as soon as possible."
